With Lukowich being waived I'm having trouble seeing the Canucks not making a move for a defenceman tomorrow. Even if Bieksa is back soon, with Mitchell looking to be out for a lot more time, they could fit Bieksa back in with Mitchell on LTIR.
I don't think you take the risk of losing an NHL quality defender for nothing going into the stretch run without having a plan in place to replace him. If Mitchell isn't ready to go by the end of the season and Lukowich is claimed, the Canucks depth is Salo, Ehrhoff, Edler, Bieksa, O'Brien, Rome, Baumgartner. Yikes.
